ST. LOUIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#SCM–Demand Management, Inc., a leading global resource for cloud-based supply chain management solutions, congratulates the recipients of the 2019 Accelerator Awards presented at the 2019 Velocity Conference. The Accelerator Awards recognize companies that have turned to solutions from Logility, Inc., Demand Management, New Generation Computing, Inc., and Halo Business Intelligence to transform and significantly improve their business planning processes, overcome complex supply chain challenges, and tap into new data sources.

This year’s Accelerator Award winners are Follett, Siemens Healthineers, Leupold & Stevens, Jockey International, Inc., and Smithfield Foods. These enterprises were recognized for leading transformative digital supply chain initiatives that resulted in significant business impact through the innovative use of people, process, technology, and data.

Siemens Healthineers provides a good example of the improvements and operational performance achieved by the 2019 Accelerator Award winners. This leading medical technology company operates a complex, capital-intensive supply chain. Transforming the delivery of patient care, Siemens Healthineers’ digital initiative focuses on optimizing inventory expiry dates to cost-effectively meet customer service goals. Siemens Healthineers turned to the Demand Solutions DSX™ cloud platform to optimize inventory investments, improve service levels, and create a healthier supply chain for confident and cost-effective patient care. Over the past couple of years, the Siemens Healthineers team has noted a marked decrease in expired inventory leading to reduced working capital.

“Companies that are serious about improving their business results can’t go wrong by focusing on achieving supply chain excellence,” said Bill Harrison, president of Demand Management, Inc. “The Accelerator Award winners are setting the pace in disciplines such as demand optimization, supply optimization, and manufacturing optimization.
